  • If you're with children, it is very interesting and entertaining. They can interact with technology, science, and astronomy. Games of logic, an antique shop, a modern... varied...

  • The Museum was very interesting for children as well as those interested in science. It is also open to the public without any additional payment and with a fairly broad schedule. It is worth to take a look.

  • Yesterday festive my partner and my niece decided to spend the day visiting the Museum Elder, I personally never had entered but from yesterday understand because you love both to my niece. Consists of 4 floors, each an of them different and entertaining. The facilities are impeccable, them movies that offer the 3D are suitable for all the family, the planetary is incredible and have a species of attraction Robotics very fun. But above all highlights the quality of its personnel on each floor, very polite at all times. Thank above all his kindness to Beatrice, one of the girls who was on first floor, which we attended in the morning and in the evening, always with a smile and happy you day to my niece who is not going through a good time, thank you! Recommended 100%, don't forget to visit it, as it is an incredible experience.

  • Climb in the cockpit of a real jet fighter, see what quarters are like on the International Space Station, learn about engines, rockets, renewables, remarkable animals and more! A great place for families with everything available in English as well as Spanish (with the exception of the planetarium voiceover), if you love STEM you have to visit.
  • Perfect for the whole family, an entry ticket valid the whole day so you can come and go as you please, there really is something for everyone here and despite it being relatively small it kept us entertained most of the day. There is a planetarium with a show in English and we watched two 3D films in English, and had a ride on the robotic arm thing which can be set to anything between gentle and wild. Highly recommend this museum.
  • A lot of interactive exhibits and everything is included in the entrance fee. The robocoaster is extremely fun and the staff very friendly. Only negative impression were that a couple of exhibits were not working properly.
  • Great place for the smaller children - especially because you could touch and try everything. Price and experience is compareable..
  • Interesting exhibition mainly about physics in work, definitely worth the price. Only negative is the broken exhibition item's in a few place
